I am contemplating requesting marketing materials in order to educate people in the local community about GMO's. I would provide a simple opinion letter with the provided materials that consummately asks the question, "If GMO's are so beneficial and safe, why is Monsanto paying tens-to-hundreds of millions to keep their achievements and integrity of patented products hidden from their beloved consumers?
“As an agricultural and technology company committed to human rights, we have a unique opportunity to protect and advance human rights. We have a responsibility to consider not only how our business can benefit consumers, farmers, and food processors, but how it can protect the human rights of both Monsanto’s employees and our business partners’ employees.”
— Hugh Grant, Monsanto, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer
[BUT HOW IT CAN PROTECT THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF BOTH MONSANTO'S EMPLOYEES AND OUR BUSINESS PARTNERS' EMPLOYEES]!!!

Peace and Love always.
